This year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona ended a few days ago, and there were a number of interesting and innovative products at this year’s event. We presented the FoneArena Awards to 10 of the latest products and innovations. Here are our best picks from MWC 2023.
oneplus 11 concept
OnePlus unveiled the OnePlus 11 concept at the Mobile World Congress 2023 in Barcelona, which is the company’s next concept phone after 2 years. It has Active Cryoflux that uses an industrial-grade ceramic piezoelectric micropump in the center, connected by pipelines between the upper and lower diaphragms.
The micropump takes up an area of less than 0.2 cm², enabling circulation around fluid pipelines without significantly increasing the phone’s weight and thickness.
It can reduce the temperature by up to 2.1℃ while improving the frame rate during gameplay by 3 to 4 fps. Active Cryoflux can reduce the temperature when charging by up to 1.6℃, so it can shave 30 to 45 seconds off the charging time, OnePlus said.
